Today was the end of grant presentations for two Fulbrighters who arrived last November. Their presentations were on blogging in national identity and the use of bamboo as an alternative construction resource, respectively. I enjoyed watching these presentations, both grantees presented an immense amount of detail from first hand experience and research with their host institutions and project commitments.
It was a little weird for me as well seeing that I only got here a month ago. Seeing a completed presentation gives you a model for what is expected by the end of your grant. I must acknowledge that my time in the country is in fact limited and that I must restrain myself from straying from the course of the grant and always keep a level headed approach of what I must do here.<< Older Entries
